    With the mule drive belt, trust me, and just go with the Exmark belt. It is wrapped and wound, and is a much better belt than you'll get at the auto parts store - if you can even find one that size. Normally, I suggest shopping around for belts for different epuipment, but with this particular one, do yourself a favor, and get the Exmark stamped belt. They are a tough belt.

    i didn't think about the quality issue there, i do my belt shopping at a truck/heavy duty specialist shop and they've generally got top quality stuff. However even if it needs to be replaced in a month at your convience it'll still make you money over the weekend, and won't cost you nearly as much as an OEM belt.
